Are all conections to battery clean and tight? try this, turn your headlights on and try to start it, if your lights go out or very dim your not getting a good conection from your battery. also maybe dead cell in battery.

When I try to start the car it makes a click sound and will not start. It only makes the click sound one time. I have changed the battery and replaced the starter and it still wont turn or even make a...


Did you also change the starter solenoid when you changed the starter? That is a possible cause.

Can you turn the engine over by hand from the crankshaft pulley to make sure the engine is not frozen or blocked? You will need a large socket to do that, but if you can't turn the engine over by hand, the starter won't be able to turn the flywheel either. The one click is probably the solenoid firing the starter piston to the flywheel but then nothing makes me think the engine is frozen in some way.

But if the starter and solenoid and battery is trying to turn a frozen flywheel, you should notice some drawdown of light intensity. Do you notice any change?

Yes. Most starters come with shims. More than likely that is exactly what you need to do is to shim the starter. More than likely the bendix is hitting the flywheel. Just as you said.

The Buick's engine does not crank when I try to start it. There is a clicking sound when I try to start it, but the engine doesn't turn over. What Do You Think?


The starter is bad or the battery is dead. If the battery is fully charged then the starter needs replaced. The solenoid inside of it is clicking

The clicking is the starter solenoid which is normal, the starter motor is not making a good contact due to it's worn, a starter replacement will fix the problem.

I don't think my truck is getting a full 12 volts during startup.


The starter is at fault,the contacts are bad in the starter,and it is drawing to much amps from the ignition.

Solenoid on my focus is clicking but stater is not turning over. When the bolts are loosen the starter will start the engine. I think the starter needs shimed, but not sure this is the problem.


You are right. Shim it out a little until the starter turns the engine freely. It's a try it and see process. Install shims one at a time because if you shim it out too far it will strip the teeth off the gears in time. Hope this helps.

2000 Astro Van - vehicle won't start - click click click...


Hello nancy355: My name is Roger and I will help you. Rapping on the starter will work a time or two for the most part. However this does require two people. One to beat on the starter while the other person tries to start the engine.Make sure the battery cables are good an tight. A loose cable will cause the same problem. If the battery has 12.5 to 13.5 volts the engine should crank over. If not chances are good the starter is bad. Before you try to remove the starter. disconnect the negative cable. This would be the ground cable.If you disconnect the positive there is always a chance to trigger the air bags or short the computer. Make sure you remember where each wire goes. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

94 ford explorer, starter won't turn


If you have the proper voltage at the starter, (battery voltage) and the starter won't turn, it is the starter or the engine. Try turning the engine over with a wrench on the harmonic balancer.

Consider trying with another battery. Possibly the battery is dying bcos the alternator is not charging up to rating.

Cheers.
